Spirit of Summer-Charity Collab

Spirit of Summer is a charity collab benefiting the Victorian
bushfire Appeal. Not only has this effected Australians,
but human beings the world over.
29 Australian and international designers have banded
together to help support many Australians,
animals and communities decimated by one
Australia's worse national disasters.

What happened?

On Saturday, Feb 7, the temperature in Melbourne was 33'c by 9am.
By noon it was 40'c and by 2.50 pm soared to 47.9'c (a state record).
Thousands of people were also about to start running from the inferno
that would become one of Australia's worst peacetime disasters.
Trees ignited in the blink of an eye.
By the time people heard the roar,
it was too late to flee ahead of the flames.
Unfortunately no one or thing
could have stopped this inferno that wiped out
communities, bushland, and lives within minutes.
Many towns now cease to exist!
After watching interviews with survivors,
many say that they cant put
into words what they went through,
saw or felt on that day.
Here are just a few pictures

of this horrible disaster

Here a 2 layouts I did with the Spirit of Summer Kit.

These are the girls I work with and one day last year,
we decided to have lunch at a park, after eating I convinced
Linda, my boss to play on the slide, it was just too funny, glad I had
my camera with me. Leslie, of course is always on the phone.

There is so much wonderful goodies in here, the hard part
was picking which items I wanted to play with first.
So come on, donate $5.00 or $10.00
these peeps need help!

If you can, please say a prayer, just a few thoughts towards
all those peeps who lost everything! And for all the animals
who have also lost their homes too.
Have a wonderful weekend, I am hosting a party this
weekend, so no computer time for me!
Take Care and be safe!
Chow for Now!

how heartbreaking. I have never experienced fire season to such a terrifying degree... but I know what it feels like to have to prepare for evacuation. We went through it 2 summers ago. It is surreal to have National guardsmen stationed at every road... and smoke. I can'teven imagine the hell of noit being able to gt out.

It is why I wanted to compact all the photos into an organized place (the main reason of many). We have an evac plan - everything is photographed and on a disc in the safe deposit box. Grab computer towers , 2 file drawers, photos, negs, and the dogs... oh and keep a bag packed and food ready. We fortunately have a place to go... no red cross shelters... although I would feel compelled to go help.

I was very moved by this post...


hope the weekend party is going well

love the layouts... but then, you are a ROCK STAR in my eyes. LOL
